Lighthouse Beach Engagement – Julia & Danny

I met Julia and Danny on a dreary day at the beautiful Lighthouse Beach in Evanston, Illinois for their engagement session. Luckily, the rain held off until the very end of their session and we were able to get in some fun beach photos and even got a few minutes of sunshine.

Pavich Family | Downers Grove, Illinois | Family Photographer

This family was so much fun to photograph! I instantly felt welcome when I walked in the door, everyone had big smiles and they were so excited for me to be there. They were all in the same country together on a rare occasion so Mom contacted me to take advantage of the opportunity and have family pictures taken together. It was such a pleasure to be invited to their home and even as an outsider, I could really feel the love they all have for each other..

It was a gorgeous day and their backyard was amazing for photos – huge shade trees letting just the right amount of light peek through. That combined with a beautiful family is a photographer’s dream 🙂

Morgenthal Wedding in Burr Ridge, Illinois | Illinois Wedding Photography | Summer wedding

Erin first found me after their original photographer fell through only weeks before their wedding.  Luckily, that date was open on my calendar and I’m so glad she reached out to me. Even I could tell that Erin and Jeff are  the perfect balance to each other and it has been so fun getting to know them and their families. I especially loved learning how Erin and Jeff met – through Twitter! Definitely the first time I’ve heard of anyone meeting  their spouse on Twitter 🙂

Their wedding day originally called for storms but they lucked out on the storms and ended up with a HUMID but beautiful day. Here are a few of my favorites from their wedding, hope you enjoy!

Woodridge, Illinois Family Photography | 3 Month Old Baby and Family Portraits | Brown Family

I have known this Mom for YEARS! I was so excited to see her again and to finally meet her family, especially her adorable 3 month old girl. Taylor is soooo super cute and I had so much fun with her! We had a beautiful day at McCullum Park, but it was so hot the day of their session. Taylor was so sweet and was such a good sport through it all.

I always love watching the dynamic of a family during family photo sessions because they almost never go according to plan especially when small children or babies are involved. But that’s also what  makes family photography so much fun for me because I love to capture the unplanned candid moments.

Here are my favorites from their session, enjoy!
